The Maquila Solidarity Network (MSN) is a Canadian labor activist network promoting solidarity with groups in Mexico, Central America, and Asia organizing in maquiladora factories and export processing zones to improve conditions and win a living wage. In a global economy it is essential that groups in the North and South work together for employment with dignity, fair wages and working conditions, and healthy workplaces and communities.

The above is from the website, http://www.maquilasolidarity.org. They run campaigns against multinational corporations, such as Nike, Wal-Mart, and Disney. They also lobby government, and educate consumers about the conditions in sweatshops and where the products they buy are made and by whom.
